Hands On Pressure Washing and Soft Washing Training

Day 1 – Thursday, February 22 – Hands on Training as I show you how to clean a roof, building, and concrete areas of the church.  The building is rather large so we will have certain areas that we will clean, but you will get a full of understanding of both soft washing and pressure washing, cleaning roofs, building washing, concrete cleaning, and how to protect the property.

Difference Makers Conference

Day 2 –  Friday, February 23-Difference Makers Conference

This conference will focus on the business side of your business. This conference focuses on those that are new to the business and or have been in business for 3 years or less, but anyone is welcome to attend. Here are just a few of the topics we will cover.

Building a Residual Based Income Business – Every business should be built on clients that have a need to continue using your services.  We will discuss and show you ways to build a residual based business.

Creating & Building Relationships with Clients –  The success of your small business will be based on your ability to build relationships with your clients.  Learn from our years of experience in working both residential and commercial clients on how to create and build relationships.

High End Residential Sales – I call it Mancho Selling.  I’ll use my experience of how to work with higher end clients, big mansions,  and build trust so you can sell value over price.

Commercial Sales – One of the reasons we teach on Creating & Building Relationships with Clients, is because that’s so important in commercial property sales and working with Property Managers.  We’ll share proven techniques and strategies on how to get more commercial clients and build residual income.

Pricing – Never ask someone else “how much should I charge”.  We will teach you and show you how to confidently price any job based on YOUR business.  In fact, everyone attending will actually participate in establishing your pricing.

One of the great products we sell at Doug Rucker Store is the pressure washing gun as well as an adjustable wand.  In order to help our customers, we provide a step by step video to assist with putting it all together.  The pressure washing gun comes complete with the Suttner ST-2305 Safety Orange Easy-Pull Trigger Gun, a 1/4-inch Mosmatic Gun Swivel, a 12-inch Suttner Star-Shaped Grip Wand, a 1/4-inch FPT quick coupler, and a 3/8-inch MPT quick coupler.  This is the gun set up I use for soft washing via down streaming for house and building washing. The gun is very easy to use and the trigger is very easy to hold open.  The adjustable wand is a straight lance with better seals that last longer than other models.  This ADJUSTABLE WAND ASSEMBLY video provides detailed instructions including connectors, tools and other details.


Open ended wrenches are my preferred tool in this case.  However, an adjustable wrench will also work if that is your preference.  You will also need teflon tape, thread sealant and a screwdriver.  In the video, I cover exactly which tools are needed for which parts.


One of the first decisions for the adjustable wand assembly is whether to use the mosmatic swivel.  This allows you to rotate or twist the wand without having to bend the hose.  Thus, the advantage is being able to change the angle of the pattern on the end of the nozzle.  In some cases you need a horizonal spray, and in other cases you need vertical spray.  The mosmatic swivel makes this process much easier without having to stop, reach out, and turn the nozzle to the desired angle.  This saves time on the job and makes the entire cleaning process much easier and less exertion on your body.
